Computed Tomography of the Cardiovascular System

Birgit Kantor, Eric E. Williamson
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 556

Computed tomography of the heart and cardiovascular system continues to show an impressive and tremendously successful development. Technical improvements translate into new applications and enhanced diagnostic accuracy and the new diagnostic opportunities may potentially be beneficial for many individuals with known or suspected cardiovascular disease. In order to assure that the potential of cardiovascular CT will optimally be used for patient care, a continued, strong joint effort concerning education and training, further research, and advocacy will be necessary. The combined knowledge, experience, and input of all clinicians and researchers in the field will best serve that purpose. Cardiovascular Computed Tomography is the first textbook to cover the heart, cardiovascular and peripheral vascular systems and will provide the reader with the necessary background information to perform cardiac CT on symptomatic patients and asymptomatic individuals for the accurate assessment of underlying disease.

Pulmonary Imaging

Contributions to Key Clinical Questions

Athol Wells, Sujal R. Desai
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 220

Unlike other texts of imaging for clinicians, Pulmonary Imaging seeks not to teach the physician or surgeon about the radiologic signs of pulmonary disease but rather inform about the value of the various imaging tests in different clinical scenarios. Accordingly, each chapter is written by a clinician and radiologist: the basic ethos is that the clinician identifies the common problem-areas and questions faced in a given field of pulmonology and that the radiologist attempts to critically define the role, if any, of the different imaging studies. Pulmonary Imaging will be valued by physicians and surgeons who regularly investigate and manage patients with pulmonary disease. There is little doubt that imaging tests are vital in the investigation of respiratory disease. However, because of the staggering advances in imaging technology, the practicing physician or surgeon is often faced with a wide range of potential radiologic tests. Moreover, it is fair to state that the evidence-base for the utility of some tests in specific clinical scenarios sometimes lags behind the enthusiasm and adoption in practice. Indeed, it has become apparent to many thoracic radiologists that, in certain clinical settings, the more sophisticated radiologic techniques (e.g. multidetector row CT) probably have little to offer over the more traditional modalities, such as plain radiography. The main aim of Pulmonary Imaging: Contributions to Key Clinical Questions is to inform the reader about the value of various imaging tests in different clinical scenarios, based on the available evidence. Each chapter is co-authored by a physician and radiologist with the former defining the key clinical questions which arise in a specific setting and the radiologist outlining the role of imaging tests, if any, in answering these questions. It is hoped that this critical approach to radiologic tests will appeal not only to physicians and surgeons but also to radiologists who must regularly manage patients with respiratory disease.

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Causes, Controversies and Treatment

Bruno Lunenfeld, Howard J. A. Carp

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 304

Exploring basic science and the clinical applications, Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: Causes, Controversies and Treatment provides an authoritative, comprehensive review of the management of recurrent pregnancy loss. Many subjects in this area are controversial, and occasionally clinical decisions are based on lack of knowledge rather than evidence. For this reason, chapters include debates by leading experts to aid the clinician in deciding on the appropriate clinical management. Chapters cover basic science, genetics, and the application of evidence based medicine as well as mid- trimester loss, late obstetric complications, and related psychological mechanisms. This book will be essential reading for specialists working in recurrent pregnancy loss clinics and associated disciplines, as well as anyone wishing to gain a comprehensive view of developments in the field.

Explaining "Unexplained Illnesses"

Disease Paradigm for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Fibromyalgia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Gulf War Syndrome and Others

Martin L. Pall

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 150

Discover the answer to the mysteries of these debilitating illnesses Explaining "Unexplained Illnesses" provides long-sought explanations for the properties of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), fibromyalgia, and posttraumatic stress disorder. This groundbreaking book examines common symptoms and signs; short-term stressors such as infection, chemical exposure, physical trauma, and severe psychological stress; why people are often diagnosed as having more than one of these illnesses, and approaches for treating the cause of each disease, rather than the symptoms. The book presents a detailed and well-supported mechanism (the NO/ONOO- cycle) that provides consistent explanations for many of the puzzling elements of these diseases. At least a dozen scientists have proposed that chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, and fibromyalgia must share a common mechanism; others have suggested posttraumatic stress disorder may belong to this group as well. This unique book provides explanations for their previously unexplained properties with more than 1,500 references to scientific literature, creating a whole new approach to therapy and treatment of these illnesses. Explaining "Unexplained Illnesses" provides answers to these questions: * how do short-term stressors initiate chronic illness? * how does the biochemistry of the NO/ONOO- cycle produce chronic illness? * how can the diverse symptoms and signs of these illnesses be generated as a consequence of their common biochemistry? * why is there so much variation in symptoms from one sufferer to another? * what are the principles underlying the NO/ONOO- cycle mechanism? * how does the NO/ONOO- cycle provide explanations for a dozen previously unexplained properties of these illnesses? * how might 14 additional illnesses/diseases also be caused by the NO/ONOO- cycle etiology? * and many moreExplaining "Unexplained Illnesses" is a must-read for physicians and scientists, and for anyone who suffers from-or knows someone who suffers from--these previously puzzling illnesses.

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Tin C. Li

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 252

Chronic pelvic pain [CPP] - defined as pain of anatomic origin that affects behavior and lasts longer than six months - is one of the most common medical problems affecting women today. Clinicians have begun to realize that the incidence is much greater that initially thought. CPP patients present to different medical specialists depending upon primary symptoms. Patients may also present with referred pain or multiple sites of pain origin, therefore it is imperative that clinicians gain an understanding of the interplay between the multiple organ systems that serve as potential sources of pain. CPP is a difficult problem to manage. In many situations the exact underlying cause is uncertain. In others, the pathology thought to be contributory may turn out to be coincidental. It is well recognized that treatment is often of limited success.
